Treasure-Hunters

Fight Club Au

Okay okay so I’ll try to write some headcanons on this Fight club au to try to gather my thoughts on it

*Note I haven’t watched Fight Club for years so don’t punch me in the face if I’m off 😂😂

-The Drakes Bros are in need of some extra cash, so they start their fight club

-Only people who know about the fight club are your cons, hinky businessmen/women, and treasure hunters (obviously)

-There’s lightweight, mid and heavyweight.
•Lightweight: Elena Fisher, Rafe Adler, Katherine Marlowe, Eddy Raja and Chloe Frazer
•Midweight: Nadine Ross, Talbot, Gabriel Roman, and Harry Flynn
•Heavyweight: Nathan Drake, Samuel Drake, Zoran Lazarevic, Victor Sullivan and Atoq Navarro

-Sam is always getting his nose broken

-Nate constantly has a black eye

-Lots of blood, cuts and tending to wounds

-Elena once broke her wrist on Rafe’s jaw and Nate freaked out

-There’s male + female fights because the girls are absolutely badass

-Marlowe is more of a bystander, keeping track of winners and losers

-Chloe is the only one who’s never been beaten. Highest respect from everyone

-Someone who is under the weight category of another can pick a fight if they want (sucks to be you if you pick a fight and can’t win)

-literally no one wants to fight Zoran because he’s a beast lol

-Sometimes they have drunk fight nights which usually end up in bones being broken-never pretty yet they keep doing it

-Sully’s always trying to fight with a cigar in his mouth

-Rafe is really quick (dat sword fight scene doe)

-Nadine is constantly challenging the Drake brothers and 2 times out of 3 she wins

- 9 times out of 10 when Harry fights anyone he says ‘you won’t hit this pretty face’ which ends up with a punch in the face. Lol

Malkas Steele, sacred-urn-toppler, hallowed-tomb-defiler, mystic-ruin-desecrater and treasure-hunter.

Malkas is a tiefling for a new dungeons and dragons campaign I’m going to run soon, set in the future of the Forgotten Realms and by future I mean vague 1930s. Malkus was born in Waterdeep and spends his time travelling across Faerûn, venturing into ruins and destroying history in search of treasure with a more immediate monetary value. Eventually, he wanders into the Neverwinter Museum of Art with a bag full of Illithid artifacts and meets Edith…

O Treasure Hunter! O Archaeologist! You bury the years
with your brittle body, mandibles dirt-clogged. O Unspoken Voice,

you hoarse the evening with sleepy sex calls, barely awakened,
a fire engine stumbling the air. You kiss the trees.

You flutter-buzz-shiver, sidewalk-bound by my shoe, gray-green
monstrosity, friendly horror, late-night booty call.

O Unpacked Box, you move in a world forgotten, encrypted animal
hacking yourself into something new. A dog-end

between my fingertips, a Christmas ornament, I hang you branch-wise,
out of season. O Life Clinger! O Bird Feeder! O Emptying Skin!

Elphaba smiled as she stepped off the bus and made sure her pack was secured over her shoulder. Some of the locals moved away from her as they noticed her odd skin color and she ignored them as she moved to find who she came to see. 

She stepped into the town library and started to read up on the locations. She was so close to clearing her families name. Just a few more things she needed to find. 

And she needed to find them before Morrible did.  

Reliefs in Mersin fall victims to treasure hunters

The walls of the Şeytan Deresi Canyon in Mersin are home to some of the most unique reliefs in the world, but a lack of formal protection has resulted in treasure hunters damaging the artwork despite the lack of any valuables in the area.

“Treasure hunters dig these places for nothing and damage the reliefs. People carved their reliefs there in the ancient ages but established their graveyards in the main rocks in very different parts of the valley that cannot be discovered,” said Mersin University Archaeology Department Professor Serra Durugönül regarding the Adamkayalar (man-rocks) reliefs, which consist of 11 men, four women, two children, a mountain goat and an eagle.

The reliefs, which dates from the second and third centuries B.C., are located in such a difficult location that even mountain goats experience difficulty in accessing them. Read more.

Treasure Hunters [AU]

Leon carefully eased himself along the wall, just a few feet away from the edge of a deep pit. He could hear the sand dripping to the floor below with every step he took, telling him the old, stone floor he was standing on was very unstable. “The sooner I can get out of here, the better.” He muttered to himself.

It was a good thing Leon was already close to his goal; the Pharaoh’s scepter, said to have been stolen, then sold, then stolen again, etc, until it ended up in the treasure horde of another ruler. Leon had to do a lot of digging to even pinpoint where the scepter could have been hidden.

With a sigh of relief, Leon made it past the pit and continued on more solid ground. He pulled a flashlight from his leather jacket and shined some light into a narrow passage ahead of him. Leon knew that the closer he got, the more likely there would be traps. There was a reason robbers had not completely looted these ruins already.

Treasure hunters unearth burial chamber

An ancient Roman-era burial chamber has been unearthed by treasure hunters who dug a three-meter tunnel inside a shanty house in the western province of Kütahya.

The suspects kept the earth from the tunnel in the shanty house in the Alipaşa neighborhood.

After learning about an illegal excavation, the Kütahya Police Department for Anti-Smuggling and Organized Crime began to observe the house.

The residents of the house, Muzaffer Kınteş, 67, his son Muhammet Kınteş, 25, and their friends Mehmet Ali Günay, 49, and Okan Açıkgöz, 39, were all detained in an operation, although police are still searching for two fugitives. Read more.

An island's damaged heritage

Sri Lanka’s treasure hunters wreck ancient cultural artefacts

The reclining Buddha statue in Danagirigala, Sri Lanka now only has one eye. Treasure hunters pulled out the other one. The stone pillow on which the Buddha rests his golden, curly-haired head has a hole in it.

“The perpetrators were hoping to find gold, silver, precious stones or ivory,” says Senarath Dissanayake, director general of Sri Lanka’s Department of Archaeology. Destructive treasure hunting is a major problem in the island country off the tip of India.

“Treasure hunting is based only on folklore about great riches. It has no scientific basis,” Dissanayake says. Read more.

Deep down on the bottom of the Baltic Sea, Swedish treasure hunters think they have made the find of a lifetime.

The problem is, they’re not exactly sure what it is they’ve uncovered.

Out searching for shipwrecks at a secret location between Sweden and Finland, the deep-sea salvage company Ocean Explorer captured an incredible image more than 80 meters below the water’s surface.

At first glance, team leader and commercial diver Peter Lindberg joked that his crew had just discovered an unidentified flying object, or UFO.

“I have been doing this for nearly 20 years so I have a seen a few objects on the bottom, but nothing like this,” said Lindberg.

UK treasure hunters make archeologists see red

With a metal detector and some luck, hobbyist treasure hunters in the UK can end up owning highly valuable artifacts. But archaeologists are speaking out against treasure hunting, saying it damages key historical traces.

Hobbyists scavenging for ancient jewelry or a cache of Roman coins are an increasingly common sight in the UK’s countryside. With some enthusiasts having unearthed thousands of pounds worth of treasure, the lure of heading out with a metal detector can be potent.

Historical artifacts, including coins, old tools and weaponry, turn up with some regularity among the thousands of objects dug up each year. But hobbyists have been so successful that some archaeologists are accusing them of looting Britain’s heritage. Some even want the practice banned. Read more.

The Beale Treasure Ciphers - Modern Take on an Old Mystery
The Beale Ciphers are a set of three ciphertexts that supposedly reveal the location of one of the grandest buried treasures in U.S. history: thousands of pounds of gold, silver and jewels. The treasure was originally obtained by a mysterious man named Thomas Jefferson Beale in 1818 while prospecting in Colorado.

The second cipher can be decrypted fairly easily using any copy of the United States Declaration of Independence, but some editing for spelling is necessary. To decrypt it, one finds the word corresponding to the number (e.g., the first number is 115, and the 115th word in the Declaration of Independence is “instituted”), and takes the first letter of that word (in the case of the example, “I”). Note that this method of encryption is slightly different from a standard book cipher.

Beale used a version of United States Declaration of Independence different from the original. To extract the hidden message, the following 5 modifications must be applied to the original DOI text:


  • after word 154 (‘institute’) and before word 157 ('laying’) one word must be added (probably “a”)
  • after word 240 ('invariably’) and before word 246 ('design’) one word must be removed
  • after word 467 ('houses’) and before word 495 ('be’) ten words must be removed
  • after word 630 ('eat’) and before word 654 ('to’) one word must be removed
  • after word 677 ('foreign’) and before word 819 ('valuable’) one word must be removed

Treasure Hunters Raid Soon-To-Be-Excavated Ancient Thracian Tumuli In Bulgarias Tatarevo

At least one of the Ancient Thracian burial mounds (tumuli) in the southern Bulgarian town of Tatarevo, Plovdiv District, which are soon supposed to be excavated by the Director of the Plovdiv Museum of Archaeology, Kostadin Kisyov, has been raided by treasure hunters recently, a report says.

Photos made on the site and with Google Maps demonstrate that looters have made their way into one of the three Thracian tumuli known as the Tatarevo Mounds, reports local news site Parvomai.net.

Traces on the spot show that the treasure hunters must have managed to take away ceramic vessels from it, plus potentially other ancient artifacts.

About a month ago, the Municipal Council in the nearby city of Plovdiv voted to allocate funding for emergency excavations of the Great Tatarevo Mound by a team of archaeologists led by the Director of the Plovdiv Museum of Archaeology. Read more.
